Existing B.C. drivers- You must first pass a 40-question multiple-choice motorcycle knowledge test that is available in different languages and is done at ICBC with appointment. It's a computer based test.The Learn to Ride Smart guide is an ICBC resource to prepare for this test. After you pass, you get a Class 6L or Class 8L learner's license that comes with restrictions, such as no passengers, a maximum speed limit of 60 km/h, and only riding during daylight hours. You also need a supervisor, who must be at least 19 years old (or 25 years old if you have a Class 8L license) and hold a valid Class 6 full-privilege license You can practice sample test questions at Richmond Public Library website or on Driving Tests website.
The motorcycle skills test is a 15-minute test that assesses basic riding skills, including signalling, clutch and throttle handling, braking, and turning. It can be taken after holding a 6L or 8L licence for at least 14 or 30 days, respectively at an ICBC location. The test involves riding in a paved lot at slow speeds and demonstrating various riding skills. If you don't pass, you can take the test again after seven days. Once passed, the 60 km/h speed restriction is removed, and you can ride without a supervisor. Other learner's restrictions like no passengers and no night time riding still apply. Road test must be completed within the time remaining on the learner's license.
The Class 6 motorcycle road test is the final test before getting a Class 6 full privilege motorcycle driver's license which is always conducted by ICBC examiners. The test can be taken after obtaining a Class 6L or Class 8L motorcycle learner's license, passing the motorcycle skills test also known as MST, and meeting other requirements. The road test lasts 50 minutes and includes a pre-trip safety inspection, on-road maneuvers, and hazard perception. A See-Think-Do approach is used to test observation, speed control, steering, space margins, and communication skills. To prepare for the test, it is recommended to know the rules of the road, practice maneuvers and take rider training. A motorcycle in good working order, valid insurance and registration documents, required ID, and license fees must be brought for the test and all outstanding fines must be paid before the test. Motorcycle and license restrictions apply based on the type of vehicle.
